Week 14: Center Frame Portrait

The assignment this week was to take a center-framed portrait shot that isolates the subject and exhibits loneliness. What to do, what to do. I’m not really a portrait photographer, nor do I especially enjoy taking portrait photos. I’m also not inclined to be a voyeur of people when traveling around with my camera. So I came up with this: the bewildered, serious tree in the midst of a profusion of happy daffodils. The “how did this happen” shot. Oh well…

Week 13: New Beginnings

For me, spring always represents new beginnings–almost in every direction. Each year I look forward to the first blooms of the profusion of daffodils in my yard. They always usher in the rest of the springtime flowers.

Week 12: Trash

I have to admit, I wasn’t motivated this week. The word “trash” evokes a negative reaction in me and I couldn’t think of a way to portray the topic in a way that I would enjoy. But then I went for a walk and realized that nature also has trash and that it handles its recycling in a very positive way. Decomposition! The fallen tree here is being carried in a funeral procession by live tree pallbears on its journey back into the soil.

Week 11: Fill the Frame (with one color)
 
Very challenging as everything you look at is made up of many colors, even those things that seem like only one color. I took some closeups that were contenders for this week’s challenge, but kept coming back to this image of winter’s coloration of brown on brown on brown.

Week 10: Hometown
 
The town where I have lived for 18 years was founded in the mid-60s as one of three planned communities. Today, it has grown quite a bit from the original days, but still retains some of its old charm in the oldest neighborhoods. Here is one of the first mixed use plazas from the old days, with its founder still keeping watch and enjoying the view.

Week 8: Leading Lines to Infinity

This was again a very challenging assignment in that I wanted to make an image that fit in with my notion of what a leading line to infinity really is. For me, a line to infinity is one that leads to somewhere I can’t see.The end of it could be around the next bend, but if I can’t see it, I imagine it could go on forever. Here’s what I saw when I made this photo: the band of horizontal lines is leading into a road that picks it up and continues on and out of my view. In addition, a couple of jet trails are leading into or out of (your choice) the picture.at the same point where the road disappears.

Hibiscus

52-Week Photo Challenge, 2019
Week 6: No filter

A hibiscus plant I am wintering over inside the house chose this week to send forth one of its beautiful blooms. I took the opportunity to snap a photo of it using my cell phone, which I often favor over other fancy camera equipment to capture closeups of flowers. This is my no filter submission for this week.
